State-of-the-Art Light Show Celebrating King David and History of City Opens in Jerusalem

editor 7 April 2018

By Israel21C.. More than 3,000 years ago, a redheaded shepherd boy from Bethlehem felled a menacing giant with a slingshot. He played the harp and composed the poems immortalized in the book of Psalms. When he ascended to the throne, he established Jerusalem as the capital of the 12 tribes of Israel. The epic story of King David has inspired great painters and sculptors for centuries. Now that story is depicted in 18 larger-than-life projections on the ancient stone walls of the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem’s Old City.

editor 13 September 2016

By Paula R. Stern.. I have a secret to tell you about Israel.

Europe declares war on terrorism* (*Offer not valid in Israel)

editor 25 June 2016

By Rabbi Abraham Cooper (SWC).. Earlier this week, my Paris-based colleague, Dr. Shimon Samuels and I met with senior officials in Berlin that focused on the implications of 1 million Middle Eastern migrant/refugees coming to Germany. Social integration and the challenge of changing the problematic attitudes brought from their cultures about women, gays, and Jews was the focus of much our conversations. And there are new developments from the burgeoning threats of terrorism. Despite their best efforts, it is clear that Germans and other European countries cannot validate the true identity of hundreds of thousands of new arrivals.
